Rider's saddle won't come off F4RR

So I know how it's supposed to be removed according to the manual but it won't come off. Am I missing something?

Reach in behind the lock and give the inner cable a gentle tug.Very common.

the key releases the rear seat only, not the rider seat. Remove the rear seat and you will see a latch you need to pus to remove the rider seat.
Are you sure you read the manual?
Maybe a bit too much of spiced Christmas eggnog?!?

Not really. A F4RR can only be 2010 or newer and they all are 2-seaters.

Thanks for that Balz...I learn something new every day.

However, it would be nice for those of us who try to help out each day for a post like this to start in the realm of: "I have a (model year) _____ (model) _____ that I am having _______.......

He nicely filled the registry like so often requested by some for this reason... Still not good enough?

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Oddly enough, I don't look at the registry submissions for a couple of reasons...one is that most folks don't use it and two is that for multiple bike owners, it still isn't specific enough as to which bike is being referenced...for instance if you posted the same inquiry....

In this case it would have helped me though, so perhaps i'll look there, too next time.

Okay okay... BUT... He also has it in his undertitle. AND... It says it in the title. Of the thread... AND... As an active member he even introduced his bike
